FAQ I’ve already completed a TEFL course, can I get a discount? Yes! So long as you’ve completed comprehensive TEFL training, you’ll be eligible for a further discount. Contact us to find out how much extra you’ll save. You should book flights to arrive into Yangon International Airport (RGN) on your specific internship arrival day, for airport pick up and orientation. How do I get from orientation to my placement? At the end of your five day orientation, you’ll travel by public transport to your placement location (if outside Yangon) and a representative from your school will meet you on arrival. You’ll be reimbursed for your travel ticket too. Will I be placed with other interns? There will be native English teachers placed in towns nearby one another.

You’ll get to know each other during orientation so it will be easy to plan meet-ups with fellow teachers - you’ll be joining a great community of around 30 English teachers! 9 Teach English in Myanmar Your 1,240,000 - 1,420,000 Myanmar Kyat (US 700- US 800/ 600- 730/ 533- 610) monthly allowance will be paid in cash around the 10th of the month. Experienced teachers can expect to earn the upper pay scale. You should budget to have enough spending money to cover your six weeks in Myanmar until you receive your monthly allowance. We recommend around US 800 (in addition to your housing deposit if you plan to rent an apartment). TIP: Our previous interns say your first month can often be when you spend more - excursions, socialising and getting settled in. We recommend you try to budget a little extra per month for trips and then an emergency fund / credit card for unexpected events. Who will I be teaching? You’ll typically be working in a language institute or a private school, and your students will be aged between three to 16 years. Can I be placed with a friend? Yes, you can request to be placed with a friend or as a couple. You’ll have a spot on your application form to mention who you’re traveling with. premiertefl.com Myanmar How long before my start date should I arrive? How much will I get paid?

Note: placement together is dependent on availability and can’t be guaranteed. Where will I be located? You will be located in Yangon or Mandalay. You will be asked to nominate your preference of placement (NB. due to availability preference can’t be guaranteed, so it’s best to be flexible and apply early). What will my housing be like? Myanmar You’ll have full accommodation guidance to arrange your housing. During orientation you’ll share a dorm with fellow newly arrived teachers, the best way to get to know your new best friends! You’ll have full flexibility for housing during the rest of your stay in Myanmar, many interns choose to stay in their Yangon hostel for a discounted rate around US 100 - US 200 monthly. Alternatively you can plan to share a local style apartment, budgeting US 250- 300 per month. TIP: For those seeking an apartment, keep in mind a deposit is usually required of 6 months’ rent in Yangon (although it is possible to find housing where this is negotiable). I have dietary requirements, will I manage okay? Yes, previous interns with both gluten and dairy free requirements as well as vegetarians have managed well with advice from our in-country team. What extras do I need to pay for? - Doctor’s letter (to say you’re fit and well) - Criminal record check - Comprehensive health & travel insurance - Visa (reimbursed once you begin teaching) - Flights Can I book a one-way flight? Yes, you can book a one-way flight to Myanmar, however immigration may wish to see proof of your planned exit. We advise interns to book a flexible ticket (or two one-way tickets) so you have the freedom to make travel plans while you’re there. Your business visa will be valid for 2.5 months (70 days), and you’ll make one visa trip out of the country to renew it. We recommend you take full advantage of the travel allowance from your school for this and plan a memorable mini break! Combined with new-found friends you’ll have the perfect recipe to explore more of Myanmar or Southeast Asia for the ultimate postteaching adventure. Is there a chance I won’t be accepted? As with any internship your spot isn’t guaranteed. Your application is subject to local school and visa approval. If your application is not approved by our partner schools you’ll be refunded all of your internship fee plus 50% of the value of your included TEFL course. Essentially, you’ll get TEFL trained at half price. We’ll also guide you on other internship options or independent job searches. 10 Teach English in Myanmar premiertefl.com
